Psylocke Art Nouveau Print

When I was a kid I thought Psylocke was cool. Rogue was my favourite but Psylocke was a close second.

Despite her ridiculous costume (everyone looked pretty outrageous in comics at that time) she had dark hair and a sword and wasn’t a villain (or at least only briefly). What little girl didn’t want to grow up to have long purple hair and be a ninja?

Here is my tribute to her as a poster I would have loved to have as a kid.

I will be selling this as prints at Supanova Melbourne 2017 and my other up coming conventions.


Mini Baby Groot Plush Toys

I have four (4) new Mini Baby Groots ready to find new homes. They are the perfect size to decorate a desk or as a cute companion in your spaceship.

For Sale Now on my Etsy Shop >

Each one is approx. 18cm high (7 inches) inspired by the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” character Baby Groot.

Made from quality tan fleece with black plastic safety eyes and filled with squeezable soft polyfil stuffing. The leaves and green body stripe/vine are made from light green felt. The white pot base is filled with plastic pellet “beans” to give it weight and stability.

Being handmade there are slight differences between each toy.

All of my plush creations are made with love in a smoke free home.

Each plush is carefully package in a cotton drawstring bag, boxed and sent via Australia Post. Tracking on international postage is available.

Please contact me through my Etsy Shop if you have any questions regarding shipping.


Custom Jane Shepard Plush

Another commission from last year and probably one of the most complex plush toys I have created in a while, a custom chibi Captain Jane Shepard.

She is a small but huggable 16 inches tall plush made with high quality and very soft fleece material with felt and embroidered details.
The custom hair style and skin color was requested by the client. Her armour is made from dark grey and black fleece and felt with applique ribbon for the stripes.  Her lips, eyes and all other embroidered/applique was done freehand.  The base of her boots is re-enforced with plasticard to help them keep their shape (flat at the bottom) and help her stand.


Godzilla Plush

I designed and made this cute little Godzilla plush as a Christmas present for a friend who has everything. The plush would be roughly 30cm tall (I forgot to measure the finished plush once it was finished) made from grey-ish green fleece with grey felt claws and back spikes. There are plastic “beans” in the feet and bottom to help him sit up right and give him weight. The eyes are made with embroidered gold glitter felt.

I am thinking of simplifying this pattern to make smaller Godzilla plushies to sell in my shop and at my upcoming events.


Red + Gold Wedding Lion Dance Plushies

I was honoured to be asked to create a pair of Lion Dance plushies for a friend’s sister’s wedding. I am particularly proud of these toys, not only because I think they turned out really well but because I had only a week to make them both!

Made in lucky red and gold they are approx. 20cm long based on my existing pattern but with extra large heads to make them more “chibi”.
Like the previous lions they have silver faux leather mirrors on their foreheads and red felt “fringe” embroidered on the body and legs.
For these plushies I included extra pom pom details to the nose and head. The feet have been re-enforced with plasticard for balance and stability.

The plush lions were presented to the bride and groom in a very special lion dance performance.

I had wondered why I haven't been seeing your artwork in my feed - thought you must have stopped posting here or something... and then found I hadn't clicked follow. What a silly goose I am! Oversight now fixed!
